Surfrider PBC Upcycle Contest

What is an Upcycle Contest?


is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products. AKA turning the old into the new!



All submissions must be made of materials that have previously been purchased and are now being reused.

Post a 1-2 minute video OR picture of final product.

We want to see your creative process! Be sure to record how you made your new product, or at least snap a photo of the final piece, and post on your Instagram account. Make sure to tag us (@surfriderpbc) and use the hashtag #SurfriderUpcycled.

Judging will be based on creativity and functionality.

We know you have some amazing ideas waiting to come to fruition!

Submissions are due Aug 31st!

Winners will be announced on our Instagram on September 1st, so don’t delay!


Here are some examples of other upcycling projects for your inspirational pleasure.

Winners get Surfrider swag, free MAKO Brand products and more to come!
